Urban Society at the End of the Revolution: Annapolis 1782-86, Community and Congress

Project to re-create the community of Annapolis, Maryland as it existed from 1782-1786 in a book or series of articles which will enhance historical understanding of this important 18th century urban cultural and political center. ABSTRACT: Project purposes to re-create the community of Annapolis, Maryland as it existed from 1782-86 in a book or series of articles which will enhance historical understanding of this important 18th century urban cultural and political center and, therefore, illuminate a significant segment of national heritage. During the period under study, Annapolis played important role in nurturing the nation's new government, serving for a time as the U.S. capital, as the site of the Confederation Congress and of the Annapolis convention (which resulted in the Constitutional Convention). Will question how revolutionary Annopolis was structured economically, socially and politically and how it functioned. Emphasis on physical similarities of present city to past community in effort to relate community to its environment. Annapolis particularly suited to project because of its well-preserved state and the availability of records and documents regarding the city and its historic development. Other purposes of the project are to improve present community spirit and involvment and to development knowledge that will serve as incentive for an historical restoration and interpretation program.
